October 29, 2012 12:12 pm This is the first time I've seen this in color, which is another good argument for the Marvel Essentials program. Even the much-disputed Colleta inks are better digested in living black and white. Bring on the Marvel Monochrome Age of flashbacks!
October 15, 2012 4:19 pm This was the last era my pull box was full - Superman/Batman, JSA, Teen Titans and Gotham Central were all kinds of massive awesome (I dropped Hulk Gray after a couple of issues though). Loeb/McGuinness widescreen action, pre mega-event Johns and Brubaker/Rucka!
October 10, 2012 12:44 pm Ka-Zar was very accessible and enjoyable in the Bruce Jones/Brent Andreson run, but I agree this character could use some brushing off and a fresh take.
August 8, 2012 2:05 pm The "Birthright" team back together. I've got to admit, these Marvel NOW! solicits are a lot more engaging to me than the New 52 ones were when they were first poppong up.
August 7, 2012 12:55 pm OMAC was one of the things in the New 52 I meant to try ... and then it was gone. Giffen and Koblish do Kirby and Sinnot in day-glo, with Dan Didio as Stan Lee? Oh well, to quote Meat Loaf, two out of three ain't bad.
May 15, 2012 10:12 am I bought Power Company and all seven lead-ins on E-Bay a few years back for a song and enjoyed them. Busiek and team books are pretty much a no-brainer for me. Not to go off track too much, but has anyone here read Kirby:Genesis? It sounds pretty good, but concepts and execution don't always match up.
May 3, 2012 8:50 am Marvel Masterworks would be my guess.
May 2, 2012 4:16 pm Love the JSA! I'm waiting to see what the Robinson reconstruction of Earth-2 looks like before I commit any money to a new series in the NuDC. Tradewaiting at best, revisiting my back issues at the worst.
May 2, 2012 4:03 pm Great list! I'd add another vote for Busiek's Kang epic. Avengers-Defenders War was one of the first great crossovers and would be a worthty addition as well.
May 1, 2012 2:52 pm Pretty nifty. Price range would be the factor for me about "tuning in" on a regular basis. An intriguing start.
